Testing, Adjusting & Balancing (TAB)
Significance of Project
- One of the largest construction projects on the College Station campus
- Campos provided NEBB certified TAB services
- Pressure testing of air terminal units revealed manufacturer’s defect
This new $120M Complex will expand Texas A&M University’s veterinary studies. The scope included the renovation of the existing small animal hospital, including surgical areas, anesthesia, and imaging spaces.
Texas A&M University has one of the top five veterinary schools in the United States. The addition of this 350,000 SF complex and animal hospital expansion provided space for more than 500 students. The new facility contains state-of-the-art classrooms, surgery suites, teaching labs, BSL-2 research labs, a fitness center, small study rooms, and a dining area.
Campos provided NEBB certified testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) services directly to the university through an IDIQ held with Texas A&M. Scope of work consisted of TAB services for a very extensive system. The new HVAC system consisted of 9 air handling units, 310 air terminal units, 14 lab and general exhaust fans, 91 lab air terminal valves, and 8 energy recovery units.
Why Campos, Case In Point
As part of the scope of work, Campos provided pressure testing of the air terminal units. During the testing, the units were not within the tolerances outlined in the specifications. The manufacturer had not provided the correctly sealed air terminal units, which were immediately replaced.
